stories that we hear some of which happen at or near race time and some that don t but which we never seem to have room for in bona fide race reports Some will be about peripheral people too like our contingency donors and sponsors whose stories never seem to see the light of day and are often well worth repeating For starters we ran across Bob Summers at the Pomona Fair grounds with a big buckle up cast like apparatus on his left leg Bob the field rep for the Summers Brothers of Ontario explained to one questioner I have a bike and I fell off It seems that Bob is a long time biker and had chosen to ride up to Laguna Seca recently for a race He said he was going too fast hit some loose gravel at his turn off and dumped himself II DVS1 FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END O NOVEMBER 18 19 20 1983 drowned one of the TV Crew s high dollar 100 000 cameras while prepping the track for the July show Hope they re not too peeved to come back next year Oddball things happen at every race We were bemused at the recent Fireworks 250 at the sight of the big 18 wheeler belonging to the Low Racing Team wandering off across the desert in search of a good spot for a pit Sure enough it got stuck but that didn t daunt the team and they unloaded a Datsun 4x4 pre runner hitched it to the front of the 18 wheeler and proceeded to tow it out of the soft spot But it got stuck again almost immediately sending one advisor storming off shaking his head and waving his arms in frustr cition Finally they had to resort to a full sized 4x4 a Blazer or Bronco to pull it backwards out of its trap That was pretty spectacular to atch too and once freed up the 18 wheeler stayed on the hard packed trails We figure that Spence Low probably owed the guy in the4x4 a clutch from the way things were smelling for a while In June at the Baja 500 Doc Sauers and Doc Ingraham codrove in Class 1 and were having a pretty good time despite running late due to a broken c v Coming out of Mike s it was Sauer s turn to drive and as he snaked through the last few mountainous turns he kept looking for his first view of Valle Trinidad where he knew his pit crew would be waiting Finally he could see it so he picked

SUCCESS COMES TO STADIUM RACING AT POMONA Usually a fast qualifier Texas Steve Foster held his Bug E Warehouse Special in front in Class 1 from wire to wire last July On the series Glenn Harris had mixed results in his Furico but he won the Class 10 main in July in a very convincing manner The Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group pioneered the concept of stadium racing in the West In 1983 the program came of age with a most popular and successful four race series at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds at Pomona CA Thompson and his crew carved a tight but challenging multi turn course out of the infield of the horserace track They spent volumes of time and money on promotion and were rewarded with capacity crowds for the opening and closing events Stadium racing is close to show biz for the off road racers The format at Pomona was geared to entertainment with a very tight schedule for the evening racing and side shows that grew in scope as the season progressed Keeping things active all evening involved heat races and a main event for each of the four classes in competition Classes 1 10 7 and the 3 wheelers MTEG also produced a multitude of race and series sponsors good purse mone and a hard fought points series During the season there were giant newspaper ads and radio spots about the Pomona races and the people came in droves The last two events featured a great hat give away as Thompson convinced over a dozen manufacturers of the public relations value of presenting nice baseball hats to the early birds at the box office The resulting crush of fans as the gates opened was akin to the Oklahoma Land Rush Once inside the spectators had an Dusty Times opportunity to mingle with the racers who dutifully lined up near the gate with their competition machines for the hour long autograph and meetthe drivers session in the late afternoon on race day This feature was a huge success showcasing the individual drivers very nicely The race action was incredible with buggies and trucks flying high rolling over and delighting the audience with their antics The 3 wheelers were equally impressive with giant fields and very close contests The race show was a success in its own right but Mickey Thompson also had added attractions to keep the crowd busy and insert variety into the program Perhaps the most popular in this line was the two time appearance of King Kong a giant size vehicle mutated from a Ford pickup Kong had the nearly obligatory rear wheel steering for this sort of exhibition moveable parts fore and aft and the world s bi ggest ti res The ri g danced down the track a few times as the crowd cheered and then climbed over and crushed up to six fullsized sedans as a grand finale King Kong was a big hit at Pomona The final event also featured exhibition races for motorcycles and side hacks making a truly non stop program Despite all this the mini trucks were the real stars of the show the action that brought the audience to its feet time after time While the Class 1 and Class 10 racing was equally competitive and spectacular the Class 7s loomed larger than life on the short track recognizable to all and driven by heroes from various forms of motor sport To say that factory interest in Class 7 at Pomona was heavy would be the understatement of the year Although some of the support was not blatant it was there for every brand Full bore were teams from Toyota Nissan Mitsubishi and Mazda Less obvious but there for sure were Ford Rangers Chevrolet S lOs Jeep Scramblers and Dodge was a late blooming entry The Gran Prix at Pomona brought all the factories out in head to head competition using racing as a sales tool for their small trucks in true Nascar tradition The series featured a race a month on Saturday night from April through July There were many individual winners at each meet all aiming at the big dollars in the points fund With the conclusion of the July event there was no delay on the points awards thanks to computer scoring that worked just dandy all season The awards presentation was held at midnight the same evening and the winners went home with their rewards The high points winner of the Big Pack Volkswagen Super 1600 Formula 10 title was Mike Gillman He drove his BFGoodrich sponsored Funco to many race victories scoring 391 5 points along the way Brian Harber in the Starner Racing Enterprises Special nailed second in points Dave Bonner in his Hawk sponsored by Auto Pro and Fat Performance was third Greg George in the Pipeline Trucking Funco was next and Ron Carter in the Funco sponsored by SM Car Specialties KYB Streaker and BC Engineering was fifth Overall points winner in Class 1 was Bob Gordon driving his Robert Gordon Feed Co Chenowth Magnum Frank Arciero Jr was close in second in his Arciero Sons Funco Only three points back was the Dukes Inc Funco of Chet Huffman followed in just one point by Jim Fishback whose Chenowth is sponsored by G J Aircraft and Ontario Air Parts Jerry Whelchel in the Thomsen Ind Aeroquip Funco grabbed fifth The big winner in Grand National Pickup Trucks Formula 7 was Ivan Stewart who not only won the driver s points but brought Toyota Motors the coveted Manufacturers Cup in their first season in competition Frosting on the cake was the second place in points for Steve Millen driving the other Toyota Motors entry Willie Valdez held up the honor of Ford putting his Esslinger Engineering Tom s Off Road Ranger home third James Thomas gave Dodge fourth spot sponsored by Budweiser and Garry Braddy a privateer was fifth the first Nissan in points sponsored by Terry Allen Datsun Among the 3 wheelers Jimmy White rode a Kawasaki to top honors on points followed by Dan Lamey Honda Dean Sundahl Honda Chris White Kawasaki _ and Gary Menefee

Maybe it started with wagons on the Oregon Trail but the modern excitement of racing vehicles over wide open terrain sometimes through incredible conditions often viewing scenic wonders that defy

SCORE CANADA AT NOTRE DAME DU NORD Photos Danny McKenzie Short course racing is very much in evidence north of the border due primarily to the efforts of George Dodd and his Score Canada crew Perhaps best known for the gigantic extravaganza in the Montreal Olympic Stadium each June Score Canada has also pioneered short course tracks in many locations in Quebec and in upstate New York Each season George Dodd finds a new location for his popular summer race schedule the 20 000 BFGoodrich Score Canada Points Series Last year it was St Guillaume P Q and in 1983 new turf was explored in Quebec at Notre Dame du Nord way north of Montreal Often short course races in smaller cities fail to draw much of a crowd but it generally works the other way in Canada The community of Notre Dame du Nord formed an Autocross Committee and the 175 eager volunteers took over organizing the logistics of the event even building the grandstands and restaurants on the race site and also handling the traffic control Local folks provided the visiting racers with hotel accommodations and put on a terrific dinner party on the Friday of Tech Inspection and Registration The race date of July 1 2 and 3 is a similar holiday in Canada to the July 4th weekend in the USA The major celebration is on July 2 Canada Day formerly Dominion Day In Northern Quebec this year the people celebrated by helping stage the 1st Annual Labatt s International Autocross Challenge in NotreDame du Nord It was a tremendous success The preview issue of DUSTY TIMES does not have space for a full race report on any event only a brief sample of the There was wild action in Class 4 on Sunday Joe Janis right and Curt LeDuc fought it out in similar Honchos and LeDuc was the winner A winner in both Class 1 and 10 Scott Taylor also got the checker first from Brian Stagg in the BFGoodrich Challenge of Champions coverage to come in future issues Last July the short course racers came from Eastern Canada and all over the USA to sample the new track and they were greeted with the cheers of 12 000 race fans who were witnessing off road competition for the first time In all there were 80 entries in the various classes including bikes and 3 wheelers and everyone had a super good time throughout the weekend Score Canada has a Hobby Class for home built buggies 1600s and novice drivers who like the pro classes have a race on both Saturday and Sunday Although New Englander Nick Andreolli led the early laps on the first round in Hobby Class in a Ghia he was out soon with mechanical problems At the checker hometown drivers Paulo Voynaud and Richard Lefebvre came in 1 2 and the crowd was delighted On Sunday Voynaud led the race from wire to wire and Jerry Dussault also from Notre Dame du Nord was second 1 2 1600 is a popular class all over the East There were several leaders in this tight class on Saturday drivers from both the USA and Canada At the flag it was still a mixed bag as Rocky Knudsen from Monticello NY won just barely ahead of Tom Surace Northfield NJ Joe Croft from Guelph Ontario was third and Montreal s Real Vaillancourt was fourth The starts are inverted for the Sunday races and Gordon Zima from Collinsville CT got a great start and led from flag to flag Rocky Knudsen worked through the field to come in second followed by Real Vaillancourt and Tom Surace A full field of 21 entries appeared for Class 10 competition and the result was a dandy dice with several leaders On Saturday Texan Bubba Wagner got the early lead from Californian Marty Tripes driving a Racehouse Funco Tripes had mechanical woes Wagner also faded and Illinois champion Scott Taylor charged through the field to take the lead after four laps A half dozen different drivers were in second during the 12 laps but at the finish the spot went to Ontario s John McPher son only inches behind Taylor Guy Leclair from Ontario was next and Ernie Jakubowski also from Ontario was fourth On Sunday it was Quebec rookie Claude Tetreault who took the Class 10 lead from the green followed by Ontario s Tom Benvenuti and Bubba Wagner Midway the battle for the lead was between T etreauh and Jakubowski but the French man was hit and got a flat tire Later Benvenuti had gearbox trouble and Ernie Jakubowski took the victory Following were the boys from Illinois Garry Larson and Scott Taylor All the 4x4s compete in Class 4 and half of the strong contenders hail from the Massachusetts shops of Curt LeDuc On Saturday Rob Crabb from Ellington CT drove his LeDucbuilt Jeep to the victory just ahead of Curt LeDuc Tom Andreolli was a close third in his Off Road Depot Jeep On Sunday Joe Janis zoomed into the lead in another LeDucbuilt Honcho The fight went on all the way between Janis and LeDuc with the car builder taking the eventual win Janis held on in second Roy Crabb just took third over Peter Nolan in a wild Ford truck from Ontario In Canada most of the Class 10 racers also have a Class 1 engine for their single seater and sometimes they run Class 1 with the 10 engine and do very well In the Saturday Class 1 action John McPherson took the early lead and despite some serious challenges he held on strong to first place at the flag After much infighting Bill Lefeuvre from Limehouse Ontario finished second Ernie Jakubowski was third and Scott Taylor was fourth Scott Taylor was not happy with his day s performance so on Sunday he charged away to the lead on the first lap Taylor drove his Pro Tech hard to stay in front and win the race There was a good dice between John McPherson and Garry Larson and at the finish line McPherson edged Larson for second Lefeuvre nailed fourth and Jakubowski was fifth The ac t ion packed program at Notre Dame du Nord ended with the BFGoodrich Challenge of Champions race a winner take all the cash affair The Challenge is open to top finishers from all the classes but the field was mostly buggies At the start Ernie Jakubowski was in front but by the third lap Scott Taylor in the BFGoodrich Pro Tech took command and he never looked back Scott Taylor won the Challenge purse of 500 and a gigantic Score BFGoodrich trophy Garry Larson in his Fat Performance Pro Tech built by Taylor was second good only for the glory A new star from Ontario John McPherson won the Class 1 honors on Saturday and after four races McPherson is the Class His tranny fixed overnight Gordon Zima drove the Off Road Garry Larson flies his Pro Tech high over a jump delighting the Depot 1 2 1600 buggy to a flag to flag victory in the Sunday race crowd Larson put the Taylor built buggy home second in Class 1 points leader In the flying mud Mario Marcoglies had a little front end damage and the Ontario racer was forced to retire Page 12 Ernie Jakubowski towed home 400 miles Saturday night to repair his buggy and the effort paid off with the Class 10 victory Preview Issue Even the trucks take to the air at Notre Dame du Nord Kenny Madera drives a

THE SCCA PRO RALLY SERl ES AT MID SEASON John Buffum and the Audi Quattro are nearly unbeatable in open class losing only one contest so far in 1983 Buffum is also the defending points champion from 1982 on the SCCA Pro Rally Series Labor Day Weekend is the time when the SCCA Pro Rally circuit resumes action after taking the summer off While most forms of motor sport that use dirt roads for the base of competition schedule the events during good weather the Pro Rally fanciers are 180 degrees out they look for rotten weather and the more rain and snow the better the organizers feel about their choice of date The Sports Car Club of America s Pro Rally Series begins in March in the seasonal rain of central Missouri and it is hectic for the spring season schedule with a points counting event every two weeks until midJune Locations for this truly national sport are in the Northwest where rain is a fact of life and the Midwest east to Pennsylvania This year there was both rain and snow at the Ohio event and the drivers and organizers loved the murky weather The average entry for a national championship rally hovers between 60 and 70 cars split into two points counting categories open and production Cars are then divided for event awards into six more classes called seeds The two point classes relate to the rally vehicle and open class is just that Any car with four wheels that is street legal in its home state is eligible for open class Stars in this category include some wild mutations such as Rod Millen s one off four wheel drive Mazda RX 7 and Eric Jones ten yearold Datsun 510 powered by a small block V 8 Naturally the SCCA has some restrictions on what sort of vehicle is a rally car and they yearly issue a list of vehicles eligible for the Pro Rally Series Production class has highly restrictive rules on eligibility and allowable modifications Here is the bigger class in competition and also the bulk of the manufacturer interest and sup The production class points leader at mid season Steve Nowicki is a privateer and he and his Plymouth Fire Arrow are also the 1982 Production Class champions port Both classes must comply with all safety rules and at each Pro Rally there is a complete tech and safety inspection Navigation equipment and most interior mods and lights are optional in both classes The seed business is totally rated on the driver s past performance in the rally world Entrants competing for the first time are placed in Seed 6 for novice drivers and the navigators are not rated Seed 5 is for drivers of some experience often those who have competed in club or regional events The degree of experience increases up the number scale to Seed 1 for top dogs the usual winners On top of Seed 1 which is a national rating there is the FIA seed drivers those with enough international experience to have a rating from the FIA who govern international motor sport Although most Pro _Rallies have awards for success in each seed the primary reason for grading the drivers is to determine starting pos1t1on Rally cars run the competitive stages by numerical starting order based on the past record of the driver So FIA and Seed 1 contestants are first on the road getting the better road conditions and having few ifany cars to pass on the stage Cars are started at least two minutes apart on each stage and the high speed runs are generally only a few miles in length As in most dirt _ road sports the slower Seed 6 folks get the worst road conditions ruts from the passage of other cars or heavy dust conditions if the weather is dry However it is a method of classification that works well for rally organizers The scheme brings the big Rod Millen built a 4x4 Mazda to keep Buffum in sight which he does very well The Kiwi also won overall in one event this year winners home first and elim of open in the major events Also inates a good many protests the time span between finishers about course blockage caused by in
